Quick Thoughts

First up: it’s nice to see that they specifically list most legacy Starwood brands as now accepting Marriott gift cards. When I stayed at a legacy Starwood property last fall, they couldn’t yet accept Marriott cards.

This is one of the most popular deals and has repeated for each of the past several years. The Marriott cards usually sell out really quickly — it’s almost like a lottery of refreshing right at 1pm and getting them into your cart.

Still, I like the price of this lottery ticket: free. You only pay if you win. Yeah, yeah — it’s not free because you have to use your time to do it. I’m not sure what you’re doing at 1pm Eastern, but I’m investing 18 seconds of my day in the chance to save a hundred bucks.

Keep in mind the max quantities — if you’re looking to buy more than one, make sure you adjust the quantity right away. There are only two hundred of the $500 GCs available and about two fifty of the $250 cards. Your chances get better on the $100 cards given that there are just over a thousand of them available (for those keeping track at home, that is $236,000 in total purchase price of the available). Still, go in with low expectations and hope for the best. I was able to get one of the bigger cards a couple of years ago and I have my alarm set to remind me to get online for this one today.

Best of luck and may the odds be ever in our favor.

It says in the T&C that: “Card may not be used for deposit, advance purchase or to secure or confirm a reservation.” that means that it can only be used at checkout to pay for the remaining of the balance if you haven’t prepaid your rate. Because if you have prepaid a room, then it is useless… Am I correct?

Can these be used at hotel restaurants if i don’t stay at the hotel? Or does that depend entirely on whether the restaurant bills as being part of the hotel?

Are these sold by Marriott and if so would qualify for the AMEX Bonvoy Travel credit?

Will the purchase be coded as Travel to earn 3x UR points with CSR?

Just sort of a meh deal. If you have an immediate use it would be worth it. Otherwise it’s not worth one’s time.

Scripting was the way to go. I was able to create the ‘Buy Now’ button ahead of time in two browsers and clicked both at exactly 1pm Eastern. Got two $500 gift cards (different people, different CCs).

How do I run a script? I did some coding back in high school but if it is fairly simple I’d like to give it a go.

Absolutely without a doubt.
